Principal’s Reflection

I watched again recently the Italian film, ‘Life is Beautiful’ and it certainly came to mind yesterday as I listened to the Gospel at Mass. If you haven’t seen the movie, and you are a parent, it shouldn’t be missed. It is a story set in a Concentration camp during the second world war. It shows a father convincing his five-year-old son that the concentration camp is an elaborate game that the Nazis have invented to test the Italians. The film copped some criticism from some members of the Jewish community who felt that the film made light of the Holocaust. The writer and director of the movie, Roberto Benigni argued however, that the heart of the film centred on the fact that most parents will do anything to spare their children pain or the reality of evil. Any parent who has seen the movie will know what he means. Yesterday’s Gospel was written by St John and is Jesus talking about what love, real love, means. ‘Love’ gets used a lot. I love my footy team, I love my car, I love pizza. In this hard hitting Gospel, Jesus says that love is being prepared to suffer for someone. In some cases, to die. Puts a bit of a different focus on love. I love the Broncos but there is no way I’m going to put my life on the line for them! Who are the people in your life for whom you would be prepared to die? Not sure about you but I don’t have a long list. Beyond my immediate family, there aren’t many. In yesterday’s Gospel, John is recounting the words Jesus had with his close followers just before he was unjustly condemned to death. “This is my commandment: love one another, as I have loved you. No one can have greater love than to lay down his life for his friends. You are my friends, if you do what I command you..” Jesus had plenty of opportunities to avoid death. He just could have avoided the inevitable confrontation but the only choice he had was to be true to himself. That is not ‘fuzzy’ love and nowhere near what so many of us, most days, mean when we say we love something. Listening to this Gospel made me think, carefully, about who I really love in this world and how important that is for me.

Andrea Wust sent me an email last week and asked me to pass it on to the Shalom community

Hi Dan

Thank you for the many kind messages, flowers and offers of help. Please can you let your staff, parents and students know that I have appreciated these things and that I saw many of them at the funeral. Please apologise that I couldn’t speak with all of them as I was just too overwhelmed, however was thankful that they were there.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart
Andrea, Cassidy and Maisey

Jan and Greg Aplin have been two of the outstanding and unsung heroes of Shalom. Jan and Greg let me know last week of their decision to retire at the end of this term. Jan has been secretary to every Principal Shalom has had. Greg is our head of Grounds and Maintenance. They have both made a huge contribution to this community and we will be less for their going. That said, as they make plans for the next phase of their lives they will leave Shalom with the very sincere thanks from this community for who they have been here and what they have done.

Funding for Schools has again been in the news. You may have seen reports that Catholic schools in southern states are putting their point of view to the Federal Government that school fees may have to rise in the face of new funding models. I would like to point out to Shalom parents that the new funding model is not, at the moment, a cause for concern. Our fees have not and will not rise dramatically. There are still complications in the funding model and some things to be worked out but no immediate cause for concern.

Bullying in schools has also been in the news recently. It is great to see that this issue is getting attention. Whenever and wherever you put human beings together there will be those who seek to create an imbalance of power. I guess that is just a part of our original sinfulness as humans. Please know that the staff at Shalom will work very hard, always, to ensure that this is a safe place for your child. As I have repeatedly said to parents and students, the biggest impediment to resolving bullying is silence. Those who think that, ‘If I say anything, it will make it worse’, only contribute to the problem. I want students and parents to ‘speak up about bullying even if their voice shakes’. Let us know, and, if we don’t fix it the first time, let us know again.

Gratefulness – my wife Sheridan found another great ‘special’ at Aldi this week! Really nice ‘Daily Reflection’ notebooks at $4.99. They are beautifully set up as journals that would assist in daily gratefulness journaling.

The Year 12 Class go on Retreat this week from Wednesday to Friday at Alexandra Headland. Every year this is one of the wonderful times of the year for our Senior students. I don’t expect this year to be any different.

Apps to be aware of..one of our staff found the following info-graphic of apps that, unfortunately, seem popular among teens. Might be worth keeping an eye out for them on your child’s device.

For Parents

I read the following article in the Weekend Australian magazine (April 28 – 29, 2018).

“Two decades after his ground-breaking book on boys, Steve Biddulph is back with some ‘incredible new findings’. The article is titled About a Boy and written by Rachel Carlyle.

It is worth a read if you are bringing up boys.

Formal News

As the Formal Dinner Dance is being held at the multiplex centre this year, it would be worth familiarizing yourselves with the area. Parking will be on the opposite side to the centre on the grassed verge. The council tell me that when they have had other events there, patrons know that is where they are to park. More information will be forthcoming with the tickets; a letter will be included with them.

Any queries can be directed to me here at the College.

Pierre De Coubertin

Every year each High School throughout Queensland is offered to nominate a student to receive the Pierre De Coubertin award.

The award is designed to recognise students who demonstrate initiative, teamwork, sportsmanship and fair play through a participation in a variety of sports in the competitive arena. The award strongly supports physical education and sport in schools and promotes a commitment to positive values. It aims to recognise good sportsmanship and not just elite performance.

We have been calling for nominations for this prestigious award from students in Yr 10, 11 & 12 over the last two weeks. If you are interested in nominating for this Award please see me as soon as possible for an information pack. The application is due back to me by Monday May 14.

Team Australia - Oceania / Melanesian Championships

Congratulations to Matthew Otto for being selected to compete in the Junior Australian Athletics team to compete at the Oceania Championships. The Championships are at Vanuatu, Port Vila in May this year.

Thank you to the Shalom community for your encouragement and support of Matthew.

Sporting Achievement

During the Easter break Bryce Hibberd was part of the Bundaberg Wildcats Representative Futsal Team that played in the U16 Qld State Futsal Titles at the Sunshine Coast. Bryce’s team achieved the highest accolade of being “Undefeated” Qld State Champions for 2018. During the State Titles, Bryce scored a total of 14 goals for his team. He has now been selected to represent Queensland for the fifth consecutive year at the FFA Futsal National Titles in Sydney/Canberra for 2019.

Winning the State Titles was a pinnacle for all Bryce’s hard work over the summer where his local team were also undefeated for the fourth consecutive year. He was also part of the U16 Wildcats team that won the local Men’s Summer League competition, played in the U16 SEQ Premier State League and were runners up in the 2018 Craig Foster International playing against State Representative teams. This has led to Bryce having played over 65 futsal games during the 2017/2018 Summer period.

Science & Engineering Challenge Regional Champions

On Monday April 30, Shalom sent a team of 30 students to the Science and Engineering Challenge held at the Bundaberg Recreational Precinct.

The Science and Engineering Challenge, is a day-long competition designed to provide Year 9 and 10 students with a positive experience of Science and Engineering.

Each school provides eight teams of three or four students. Each team assigned a challenge in which they must design, build and test something in order to solve a problem. There are eight possible challenges for students to choose from including designing, building and testing a catapult, turbine, earthquake-proof tower and bridge.

The Shalom students showed some exceptional enthusiasm in these challenges displaying excellent problem solving to be the overall winners on the day retaining the trophy that has eluded us since 2014. This performance earned Shalom a trophy as well as an electronics kit and soldering kit as a prize, which will be donated to the Science department.

Performances across all groups were consistently high with Shalom winning the day by a significant margin. Special mention goes to the group of Morgan Medcalf, Emma Felstead, Kane Murray and Daemon O’Brien who won both their challenges (Helter Skelter Shelter and Confounding Communications) and the group of Abhash Pathak, Ethan Wooldridge, Ethan Sologinkin and Hannah Medcalf who won ElectraCity.

Once again, the Shalom students participated with the great spirit that Shalom is known for and the day was enjoyed by all who attended. It is yet unknown whether a State Final will be held, however it is clear, that if this is the case, our region will be well represented by this group of students.

Taking Care of Business

CQU Business Challenge

Tuesday May 1 saw four of our Year 12 Business Education students head off to the Central Queensland University to compete in the CQU Business Challenge. The team comprising of Bradley Bonanno, Alice Dolinski, Tayla Larcombe and Natalie Schiffke battled it out against other teams from around Bundaberg for the top prize. Our students had to answer a variety of questions on Business Management, Economics/Law, Accounting and even some general knowledge questions, which certainly put them through their paces.

It was a tightly contested race, our team headed into the last round of questions in equal first place. While we did not receive the ‘gold’ medal on the night, however, due to their determination, they deserve congratulations. At the finish line our team was only two points behind the winners from Bundaberg State High School. The Business Department at Shalom are very proud of the commitment and dedication these students displayed on the night.

We would like to thank the School of Business and Law at CQU and in particular Mr Tim Whan for hosting this annual event.

The topic may relate to any historical period of a topic studied during the student's Core Studies B or History studies (Year 10, Modern or Ancient) at school and must be the original work of the student, in that the student has not received more assistance than is usually given during the researching and writing of text submitted for assessment.

It emphasizes and rewards quality research, the use of community resources and effective presentation.

The theme for 2018 is ‘Turning Points’. Students produce entries in one of three formats: an individual research paper, a museum display, or other formats – such as a multi-media format (audio/video/website), a performance, or any other form of creative representation.

Simpson Prize

The History Teachers’ Association of Australia (HTAA), together with HTAA State affiliates, conducts this competition for Year 9 and 10 students on behalf of the Australian Government. The focus of the competition is the Australian ANZAC tradition and students are asked to write an essay of 1200 to 1500 words, or prepare an audio-visual presentation of not more than 10 minutes accompanied by a written explanation of up to 400 words, on a given statement every year.

The 2019 Simpson Prize question is: “To what extent could 1918 be considered a year of victory for Australia and its people?” and requires students to respond to the question using a minimum of three of the sources from the 2018 Simpson Prize Australian War Memorial Source Selection at the link below, and their own research.

https://www.awm.gov.au/learn/schools/simpson-prize

  • Entries close 9 November 2018.

http://www.simpsonprize.org/

Premier’s Anzac Prize 2018

The Premier’s Anzac Prize 2019 encourages young Queenslanders to better understand the Anzac legacy and share their knowledge with others. The Premier’s Anzac Prize 2019 is open to eligible Queensland high school students in Years 8-11 (in 2018) and will provide Queensland high school students the opportunity to experience the Anzac tradition first-hand by travelling to the Western Front. Specific details have not yet been posted of this competition but this is the competition Harry Packwood (Year 10) entered and was successful in his selection to witness the Anzac Day centenary commemorations at Gallipoli and travel to the Western Front battlefields in France and Belgium, over the last two weeks this April. This multimodal task is due usually in September and more information can be found at:

http://qhta.com.au/the-premiers-anzac-prize-2018/

Harry Packwood’s reflection of his trip:

The Anzac premiers prize is a once in a lifetime trip. When I travelled to Europe, with seven other Queensland students, and saw the thousands of names and headstones of fallen Australian troops it was an experience I will never forget. As part of the tour you also get to see iconic buildings in Paris and London, such as the Eiffel Tower, Arc De Triumph, Westminster and Buckingham Palace. Anyone interested, I would strongly recommend that you take this opportunity. For on this trip, I assure you, you will make eternal memories and eternal friendships.
